Dan Seals Big Wheels In The Moonlight

I came from a town that was so small

You look both ways, you could see it all

All I wanted was some way out

Every evening I’d slip into town

And stand around by the caution light

And watch the big trucks rolling by

For me it was a beautiful sight

Big wheels in the moonlight

I had a case of wanderlust

I’d lie awake with the windows up

Out on Highway Fifty Nine

I could hear some big old diesel whine

She was going through all the gears

And headed out to who knows where

I fell asleep ‘most every night

Dreaming about big wheels in the moonlight

And I want to put my life on the centerline

And I want to see the world before I die

And I know that there’s a peace I’ll never find

‘Cause those big old wheels keep rolling through my mind

How I got here, it’s hard to say

So many things got in my way

Can’t complain about all I’ve got

Kids and a wife and a regular job

But at night when I’m sitting here

All alone in a living room chair

Sometimes I close my eyes

And see big wheels in the moonlight

And I want to put my life on the centerline

And I want to see the world before I die

And I know that there’s a peace I’ll never find

‘Cause those big old wheels keep rolling through my mind

And I want to put my life on the centerline

And I want to see the world before I die

And I know that there’s a peace I’ll never find

‘Cause those big old wheels keep rolling through my mind

‘Cause those big old wheels keep rolling through my mind
